My daughter will be going back to university, on campus, in Tokyo in two weeks with all the other 20 year old students. Can't imagine what could possibly go wrong.

I enjoy watching Chris Abroad videos about Japan. His British sense of sarcastic humor is great. He has good videos with Natski and Ryotaro as well.

Posted in: Japan to test anti-virus measures for big events at near-full stadium See in context

If a person has had the virus and recovered, perhaps they could set up a big event to attend. Would be interesting to know if they had acquired any lasting immunity to the virus or have sufficient antibodies.

I am sure Moscow, Beijing, Tehran and ISIS are hoping for a Biden win.

Posted in: More than 4 million Americans have already voted, suggesting record turnout See in context

It just baffles me why anyone would vote for Biden. The career politician who has done nothing and is suffering from old age against Trump who has done such great things for the economy and jobs prior to the Covid virus. I think it is just “cool” to not like Trump not being based on rational thinking just hate.

Posted in: Police using facial images from surveillance cameras and social media in criminal probes See in context

If you have ever been the victim of a crime you know had badly you want the perpetrator to be caught and brought to justice. One would hope the police are using every means available to quickly bring about justice. So using these pictures and videos to identify the criminal quicker and help solve a lot of crimes like robberies, murders, rapes and others. But with the camera footage used in the wrong hands could expose things that people want kept secret, like cheating spouses. I guess it is who is more important? The victims of a crime and justice or the possibility of exposing an unfaithful spouse?

Posted in: 86-year-old man admits killing 16-year-old granddaughter but says he was drunk See in context

HOW ABOUT THIS!!! Grandpa takes the wrap to keep his "son/the father" out of prison for killing her! His life is almost over, he's 86, but maybe he wanted to save his son from going to prison the rest of his life. Horrible as this scenario sounds, if true, the son/father will be on the street. Watch out for him.

One word that stops women in their stride to the top 'kowai'. Whenever I meet intelligent women, I always ask why don't you aim high and break the glass ceiling answer 'Kowal, kowai'.

That was some useful information Japan today.

Actually provided the number of tests given.

The number of positive results

and number with severe symptoms.

How many are still in the hospital with the virus?

Posted in: Trump to keep pushing allies to pay 'fair share' of defense costs in 2nd term See in context

A lot of people are willfully ignorant as to what President Trump has done for the US. With a little bit of effort they would find that he is Pro America, prior to the pandemic (oddly enough) the stock market and economy was booming. He helped black Americans the most with lowering their unemployment, but actually he helped everyone out. I think he is trying to keep that going without losing sight of finding ways to cut the fat. Having countries that benefit from American protection from rogue or aggressive countries isn't free and a fair share should be on the table. We don't want to be forced to be speaking Mandarin in four years do we?

Poor judgement on the kids part. He probably thought he would get away with it as well. I feel sorry for the girl as that is humiliating. Pay for new clothes and do some community service.

If he only knew to check back with her in about five years the police would believe it. After all, there was a story today about a Woman who finds skeleton, possibly of her missing brother, while cleaning her house. He had apparently been there for 5 years? Well, anything is possible.

What he did was wrong! Not sure of his motives or mental capacity, but if he did that to my daughter and I caught him, let's just say he would much rather be in police custody.

Daily cases climbed back up to 243 cases last week, but now has fallen to 165 today. So the level was raised to Red. What would the new color level be if the new cases today went the opposite direction, like to 300? Brown?

Posted in: Half of telecommuters in Japan work longer hours than before pandemic: Rengo See in context

I have been working from home since April and discovered I love it. No more 1 hour commutes to work each day saves me two hours per day and YEN for transportation. (I don't get reimbursed for transportation.) I do tend to work longer hours, but that is because I take more breaks. Once I get up and walk around and then come back to the computer I find my mistakes before sending that email. I'm terrible at proof reading my own work. I find myself being relaxed and focused. My boss likes my work, so it is a win win.

Posted in: Trump urged Abe to mediate U.S.-Iran standoff, knowing it would fail: Bolton See in context

President Trump has been doing a great job and will likely be re-elected in November. Most Americans tune into FOXNEWS and not CNN, the Onion, or JT. PM Abe;s visit to Iran was hopeful but not probable end of story. The other issue President Trump has is to reduce the Japan import deficit. The US and Japan has great relations and will likely be the same for the foreseeable future. President Trump is looking out for Americans as he was elected to do and will try to balance the imports and exports in the future.

Posted in: U.S. base construction work in Okinawa resumes after virus hiatus See in context

In the SPOILS of WAR always goes to the victor, and the victor decides the fate of the foe. The United States stopped Imperialist Japan from taking over the Pacific and much of China during WWII. The victor in this case could have continued to wipe out all of JAPAN, but elected to show mercy and construct a new government which has led to Japan's great recovery and success coming out of the war. Never has such a great alliance been anywhere, where a former foe would become the staunchest as Japan is with the US. Now, unfortunately the teachers of history have failed our youth, and within 70 years hard lessons of the not so distant past have been forgotten. The departure of US forces will only lead to Chinese aggression and need for more territory as demonstrated with Tibet, Hong Kong, and inner magnolia. The diminishing population of Japanese society will make a Chinese take over much easier and maybe without resistance from Japan with US forces withdrawn.
